So my question to you fine folks is - firstly, is this a feasible idea?

melly wrote:is urbanite an okay material for haybale construction, if so how would they tie together?
if the drainage trench was dug a significant amount deeper than the floor, do you believe water would still pool there?
if hay is not a good way to insulate the floor, would you recommend anything else that is natural? or would it be smarter for me to go with a modern insulation?
Do you think if I used a stucco sealant on the inside of the bale walls that would eliminate the moisture issues?
If my drop cieling was tied into the roof line, it would put the stress and weight of the house on the exterior posts -
When it is used for evil, then watch out! When it is used for good, then things are much nicer. Like this tiny ad:
